I think it’s funny that dogs, like mine, that don’t speak English, with no thumbs, that have never ventured outside of a porch without supervision, could in fact, be smarter than us. My dog Toby most certainly is. Every day we battle. I try to trick him into coming close enough to me, so I can pick him up and put him in my bathroom. The bathroom is all tile with no access to my socks or my blinds; these items seem to be his favorite chew toys. So no matter what trick I come up with, it’s only good for three days tops… if I’m lucky. I am honestly amazed by him. My fist is bigger than his whole head. He loves everyone no matter who they are. He will become upset if someone doesn’t like him and he rarely doesn’t like someone else for no reason. He loves to cuddle and because he’s under four pounds it’s easy. He get’s by on his looks but honestly he just wants to make people smile. He’s the sweetest dog I’ve ever known.
